15 Creepiest Modern Technologies


From inventions that can imprint stories in your mind, to advertisements that can communicate directly into your skull, we count 15 horrifyingly real technological advances that we’d just rather not see

15 – Invisible Pain Ray,


  • This is part of the Pentagon’s official weapons program, designed to deter advancing troops by heating the skin of the enemy through microwaves
  • It burns your skin at 130 degrees, and gives you an intolerable burning sensation forcing you to flee, dubbed “the goodbye effect”
  • Though they claim it’s only used in a non-lethal context, reports have shown it burns over 50% of your skin, with second or third-degree burns that cover 20% of your body being life-threatening
  • This is not a device you want to see parked at the end of your driveway

14 – Pre-Crime Camera,


  • Like something out of Minority Report, this camera developed by BRS labs can allegedly find out whether you’re a criminal or not based on the way you slouch while in public
  • It tracks 150 people in real time and gradually builds up a memory of any suspicious behaviour you might be exhibiting, then gives you a crime or terrorist rating based on that
  • So if you like wearing hats and large coats outdoors, you likely have a 20% higher Al-Qaeda affiliation than I do

13 – Schizophrenic Robot,


  • Scientists at the University of Texas have created an artificial intelligence computer that can simulate mental illnesses
  • They applied the theory of hyper-learning to the computer, so that it memorises too many unnecessary details and overloads
  • The result of which displays disturbing results – one time it claimed to have set off a terrorist bomb since it accidentally mixed a terrorist story with its own memory
  • In another, it referred to itself in third person because it couldn’t figure out why it was a robot

12 – 3D Printers,


  • We’re currently in a revolution of 3D printing, with talk of the ability to print organs used in hospital patients
  • But we’re also on the cusp of a lot more crime – with cheap 3D printers come the ability to print a lot more guns into the world, which means anyone can pull the plans off a wiki and print one into their house
  • Governments warn that we must accept that one day each and every citizen has near instant access to a firearm through the internet

11 – Google Glass,


  • So this is just a natural progression of smartphones, but nowadays people treat someone wearing Google Glass like people who carried mobile phones in the early 90s – like they’re an expensive douchebag
  • But people are also worried about you basically having a camera on your face recording them without their knowledge
  • But just like smartphones requiring a loud noise for pictures and video recording, there are ways to prevent it – until the day when google glass is cheap, everyone uses it, and people hack it to anonymously record everything
  • Then we’re doomed
